Year 2 w/e 13.12.19

What a great start to our Christmas celebrations! I am sure you will agree the children did a fantastic job in their concerts- learning all of their lines, songs and dance routines. A big thank you for all your support in learning their lines with them and also for providing such fantastic costumes. 

We have the whole school pantomime on Tuesday 17th so please make sure your child has a packed lunch for that day. 

Our Christmas party is the afternoon of the 18th so please bring party clothes in a bag to change into.

Next week we will be looking at instructional writing. Please show your child some examples and talk about the features/ purpose of this text type. They will be writing an instruction text on how to make a snowman. Please also discuss this with them. 

Have a lovely weekend

Year 1 homework blog

Good morning,

 

This week we are looking at the names and important properties of 3d shapes. The children are currently exploring how we use each shape in our daily lives and are busy crafting their own Christmas versions.

 

In English we have explored the Christmas story and shall be writing our own Christmas letters to Santa.

 

Thank you for the support you have shown the Children during today’s nativity. It means a lot to the children and is the perfect reward for all their hard work. It was also wonderful to hear the kind comments from some of you after todays play.

 

Just a reminder you can take your child after the Christmas nativity tomorrow from the usual pick up point.

 

Next week is a busy one. We have the panto on Tuesday and FP party on Wednesday afternoon. They will need to bring party clothes with them on Wednesday to get changed into.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team

The Abandoned Project!!

Good day.

I am the new EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR and Head of Operations of Overseas
Credit Commission London, UK. Sometime ago, in
our organization your overdue consignment fund was brought to our
office for final delivery clearance.

However, upon my arrival to this office, I found your consignment
clearance file lying fallow on my desk without any attention. On a
thorough scrutiny I discovered that your consignment have been
abandoned by your delivery agent. Meanwhile, I have made several
attempts to contact your delivery agent but to no avail. To my
greatest surprise, during my recent routine checking, I personally
discovered that your consignment content declaration documents stated
that your consignment contains personal effects meanwhile, it contains
United States dollar bills worth over US$ 10.5 Million dollars, which
made it impossible for the consignment to be delivered to you earlier
before now.

Based on this personal discovery, I am contacting you now to let you
know that with my position and power in this office, I can assist you
to legally clear your consignment fund, but you must agree with the
following conditions:

You must not disclose to any member of my organization whatever
assistance that I am going to render to you in respect of clearing
this consignment fund into your custody.

You will provide me with an authenticated promissory note, other wise
known as partnership agreement, that upon the safe arrival of the
consignment fund to your custody, that you give me 40% of the total
fund contained in the consignment.

You must give adequate attention to this matter until we successfully
and legally clear the consignment fund into your custody.

Upon your acceptance with my above conditions, I will furnish you with
further details of what should be done to legally get the consignment
fund cleared and delivered to you as the rightful owner of the
consignment.

Meanwhile, if you know that you would be unable to keep the secret of
my assistance to you in this regards, please do not border to reply.

Hence the consignment fund would be recovered into our organization
treasury account as unclaimed consignment fund. Be informed that the
consignment contain the sum of $10.5 million dollars in the luggage.

But if you can assure me of your competency to keep this secret, I
would like to hear from you soon as possible so that I can email you
further details and guidelines.

I am looking forward to your earliest response.
Have a Great Day

Mr. Peter Brook
Head of Operations

Year 1 homework

Good morning,

 

We have looked at finding the difference in maths this week and it would be great if you continue that at home to cement understanding with the children. One suggestion would be for them to make their own number line in chalk and jump between the two numbers, the number of jumps=the difference (You could also get them to build two towers and compare the difference in number of bricks.) . You find the difference between two numbers by starting from one number and counting to the other (so the difference between 8 and 3 is 5 because you count on or back 5 times to get to that number). If they are confident in finding the difference you can stretch their understanding by adding or taking away a set amount from both numbers and seeing if the difference changes. (8-3=5 and 9-4=5)

 

Understanding about the difference between numbers and knowing when it does or doesn’t change is a useful skill to master because they can use it to manipulate subtraction sums to make it easier for themselves. IE changing a tricky bridging sum like 13-7 to 16-10 by adding 3 to both numbers.

 

One final request. We will be using paper mache to explore 3d shapes in the final weeks so if you have any spare unwanted newspaper could you bring it into the class.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team.

Year 6 Home Learning Blog w.e 29.11.19

Today we had a visit from PC Finnister for a talk on Cyber Bullying.  Click on the link below to discuss the topic further at home

 

https://schoolbeat.cymru/en/pupils/age/7-11/

 

I’ve also set my maths homework to reinforce equivalent fractions and finding fractions of amounts – thank you to the children who are completing mymaths as this is supporting their learning in class.  The mymaths activities should be at a level where they are able to complete the activity independently at home – if you have any questions then please contact me in school.

 

Please could you begin to send in any costumes and props from next Wednesday as our dress rehearsal will be on Monday 9th December pm, thank you.

 

Continue to work on spellings and timetables activities this week.

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 29.11.19


In Maths- Telling the time on analogue clocks and digital clocks. Converting between 12 and 24 hour times.


In Technology- We evaluated our group aqueducts- did they meet the design brief, what we liked, how close to the original plan were they, what problems did they encounter etc.


In ICT-we used a branching database (paper based) to follow and identify a number of animals and alien names, following the yes/no questions/answers.


In PE, we practised passing and receiving and dribbling with the ball in hockey. 


You can help at home- practise reading times on a variety of clocks, try writing down and matching some times- so for example, if you wrote down in words, half past 10 or twenty to 6, can they write the digital time, so 10.30 and 5.40. Ask them to draw the hands on analogue clocks too. They found 'to' times trickier. Challenge them then to convert to 24 time, (add 12 to the number) so if it was 4.15, add 12 to make 16.15 and vice versa. If it seems too tricky, just stick to 12 hour, we'd rather them be confident with that.


Have a look at- https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock this is good for switching between clock displays.


Look back at last weeks blog for their 'Learn Its' to help improve speed of recall.

Use some pictures of animals, draw some on some small bits of paper is easiest. Start with just two or three. Get them to think of yes/no questions to distinguish between them. Then try drawing out some branches and writing the questions on. They can show you what we did this week then in our branching databases.


Have a look at http://www.crickweb.co.uk/ks2science.html to get a better idea. (The mini-beasts classification near the bottom of the page.)


Next week will be making at start on our 'Kindness Advent Calendar.' Can they think of some ideas for this, we have talked about it in class, so should be think of a few.  Bring them in Monday.


Have a lovely weekend,


Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips
